KELLY OVERLOCK CELEBRATES 10 YEARS WITH SERVPRO OF PORTLAND!

Happy 10th work anniversary to our Marketing Rep Kelly Overlock. Kelly came to SERVPRO of Portland in March of 2007 and worked in the office.  In her 7 years in the office she worked closely with adjusters and insurance agents as she was responsible for preparing estimates and billing. Kelly was also responsible for human resources within our franchise and managing the day to day duties in the office. As our franchise business grew, the need for an additional marketing representative was needed. Kelly was eager and motivated to take on this role and looking to put her sale experiences back into action. Kelly has been a huge asset to our marketing team. She currently is an Ambassador for the Sebago Lakes Chamber of Commerce, has volunteered for the American Red Cross Home Fire Preparedness campaign and has worked with several businesses completing the Emergency Ready Profile tool for their business.  We are incredibly lucky to have Kelly on our team. Her dedication and motivation are key to what makes her successful in her role in marketing.
